Keith Lockhart

There is an old Chinese proverb, “An army of a thousand is easy to find, but ah, how difficult to find a general.” Keith Lockhart has proven himself an influential leader in his 16 years as conductor of the Boston Pops, one of America’s most treasured musical institutions. In a city rooted deeply in history, Lockhart has led effectively by not only cultivating tradition, but also encouraging continued creativity to expand the Pops genre into the 21st century.
